Santa Claus arrived in Natchitoches!

The Santa Claus house opened on Sunday for the first night of the season.

The first visitors for the opening night were the Carioca Family from Shreveport. Pictured from left are Christmas Belle Anna Catherine Coleman, Mrs. Carioca and her daughter Mya, Santa Claus, Max Miner and Belle Tinley Durr.

Also visiting Santa this year was our first visitor from last year Madelyn Flemings from Gonzales. She wasn’t the first one in line this year, but she was the second. Madelyn shared with Santa her wish list for this year and reminded him of her visit from last year. Santa also had visitors all the way from Haiti.

Come see Santa, Miss Merry Christmas and the Belles at the beautiful Santa Claus house on the riverbank. The Santa House will be open from Dec. 5 – 23 from 6-8:30 pm Sunday-Friday and 5-8:30 pm on Saturdays.
